Giada De Laurentiis & How to Keep A Man

I haven’t read the article but posted on Just Jared this morning was this quote:

I have no problem going back to those traditional roles. I try to be Giada, the young girl that he met 20 years ago and fell in love with. All men want to be treated like kings in a relationship, and I think if women don’t indulge that sometimes, their men are likely to stray and look for someone who can give that to them.”
